Things are looking pretty good here with my resolution (I really DON"T make resolutions!) to try and knit a little every day. I've been busy adding to the stash by thrift shopping for yarn. I even found a group on Ravelry for thrifty yarnies. My latest acquisition - a destash via ravelry - is 7 skeins of gorgeous Colinette Mohair! My dream yarn - all the way from France!
And then there are the finds:
The unidentified nubby boucle - 276 grams
The unidentified cottony boucle - 85 grams
I really am trying to knit from stash! I finally decided what to do with the loopy mohair boucle from Amsterdam (Yard sale find). I have cast on for the Curly Mo Jacket by Margy Mills. It's a top down raglan jacket with a little collar.
I decided to combine this with the Berocco Optik in my stash, alternating every two rows of garter stitch as in the garter stitch jacket in Simply Beautiful Sweaters. So far I am really liking the fabric, but it's a little difficult to knit as both yarns are loopy. The colors together are gorgeous!
And I am just about finished with my knitted project for the Loopy Ewe Swap. I have to mail it next week, so I'll post photos then. Happy knitting!
